Hmm.... let's take a look at what this car has:

Image

That is not even remotely tall enough to qualify as a roll bar, if that is extended?

Image

Even some off-the-shelf bolt-in roll bars are inadequate, like the one in the NB Miata above. I drove this car at ECR and this picture tells a painful story - too short for me.

Image

Some might not agree with this "broomstick test" above, either. Because the factory windshield frame collapses quite easily.

I don't know where you live but locally here in Dallas/Ft. Worth you can call Track Dog Racing and they sell a full line of Hard Dog roll bars. If they cannot supply you with what you need, give us a call at Vorshlag.

Image

We have done seat, harness and roll bar installs in many MX5s.

Image

As well as custom fabricated roll bars, when the off-the-shelf solutions don't work for your situation.

Image

And of course full roll cages in Miatas and other cars.

Cheers,
